Description
* A complete survey of the development of European society, from Stone Age man to the fall of the Roman Empire.* Based on an entirely new concept - look at the entire European landscape and the way man has repsonded and adapted to it.Chapters cover both the well-known civilizations of Greece and Rome, and the less well known societies like ancient Russia.* Includes a useful time chart showing the developments of societies and their techniques against the background of events both historical and geographical.Expert contributors - the editor Barry Cunliffe is a well-known scholar and author of over 40 books. He is an active member of the British Heritage Council and the Council for British Archaeology. The Oxford Illustrated Prehistory of Europe looks at the changing landscape of Europe and the way man has responded and adapted to it over the millennia. Beautifully illustrated, it provides a complete survey of the development of European society from the continent's earliest evidence of humanpopulation, through the first farmers to barbarian and Iron Age societies, and the impact and eventual decline of Roman power. The twelve chapters focus on the principal periods and areas of innovation and culture, such as the Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations, showing not only how these societiesdeveloped but their relationships to each other and the landscape. Each chapter is written by an expert in his field and is accompanied by a rich assortment of colour and black-and-white plates, maps, and drawings.
